Mill and miller's house. The mill is late C19, the house may be earlier but if so
it was remodelled and enlarged in the late C19. The walls are plastered, older
parts maybe cob but most is brick; brick and stone rubble stacks topped with C19 and
C20 brick; slate roof.
Plan: L-plan house with mill attached. The main block faces south. The mill is to
the right with a stream flowing past the end. The ground slopes down gradually from
the road to the stream but the house and mill are level on a platform and there is a
raised pavement along the whole front. The house has a 3-room plan. The right
room, the kitchen, has rear lateral stack and the left room has an axial stack
backing onto the centre room. A parlour block projects at right angles to rear of
the left end facing onto the lane. First is the entrance hall and main stair then
the parlour with a lateral stack, and at the rear end is a store. The house is 2
storeys. The mill is taller. 2 storeys with loft over.
Exterior: the house section has an irregular 4-window front of mostly C20
casements, the latest are uPVC. The canted bay is also C20. The lane front
preserves more of the C19 flavour. There the left gable-end has plain bargeboards
and contains a single horned 16-pane sash. Just behind is the doorway which
contains a part-glazed 6-panel door behind a brick porch with outer Tudor arch.
This side has 2 ground floor and one first floor horned 16-pane sash.
The front of the mill is flush with the front of the house. The raised pavement
gives access to a front doorway between plain windows. This section is protected by
a pent roof on plain posts. 2 plain first floor windows and loft loading hatch in
the right gable-end. Below is the remains of an overshot wheel system. The timber
has mostly rotted from the wheel but the cast iron frame survives; it is embossed
with the stamp of Mickleburgh, Honiton 1889. There is a small room over the stream
in front.
Interior: of house has plain carpentry detail and some late C19 joinery. The mill
has plain C19 carpentry detail and the machinery, the grindstones and other fittings
remain intact.
